Don't get me wrong, Evansk. I have a draft cross and he is absolutely AMAZING! He is my once-in-a-lifetime horse, no question.
What amazes me is that this sexy beastly (this is him last summer...he looks too much like a wooly mammoth for me to put up winter pics ):
is half-brother to this unfortunate filly (yes, she is THAT butt-high...it's even more pronounced now...these were taken this past summer):
They share the same unfortunate sire:
Your horse is gorgeous! He looks so muscular and shiny.. Its amazing how much he looks different than his half-sister, but its show what you explained.
These are some pictures of my TB Perch. Cross, She passed on two years ago but she was the best horse I ever had. great disposition and what not.. But when i looked through her pictures it seems she didnt have the best conformation, but I guess it didn't matter since she put up with me for 15+ years haha!
